Munich Intellectual Property Summer Program

As a complement to its leading intellectual property program in Washington, DC, GW Law offers a four-week intellectual property law program in Munich, Germany, a vibrant city less than an hour from the Alps, known as Europe's "Intellectual Property Capital." In the summer of 2014, the program will run from June 30-July 25. The ABA-accredited program offers eight one-credit courses of which students can choose up to four (two each session), as well as special lectures and visits to local IP institutions such as the European Patent Office. In 2013, about 30 students (including students from GW, other US ABA approved law schools, and students at foreign law schools) participated in the program. The eight courses offered were also open to LL.M. students at the Munich Intellectual Property Law Center. This year the GW Law School will again offer eight one-credit courses and will look to enroll a diverse body of students as in years past.
